As well as their academic studies, students have access to the excellent sports facilities at Crickhowell’s Community Sports Centre, including a  fitness studio, a dance studio, a 3G pitch and astroturf pitch.  Students also have the chance to develop their skills through opportunities such as running coaching sessions or undertaking work placements in sport.  The course covers a wide range of sports aspects, providing a useful springboard from which to choose a future career.
